Mazzy wins her first blue!

Yesterday started out a little rough with Mazzy not wanting to get on the trailer. I've trailered her a bunch of times before with no problems, but never in the dark. Luckily the grooms showed up to help me, but I ended up getting to the show later than I had planned. Luckily, it all ended up working out in the end. Mazzy won her very first class, Pre Green Under Saddle. Yeah! That made my day! It was very windy with 40 mile an hour wind gusts, so things were blowing around, jumps were blowing down and a garbage can blew over and rolled into the ring during her class and she didn't even spook at it. I also brought Kylie and showed her in the Equitation division and ended up Champion. Overall she behaved well for not showing in a while. Her stride was big so the lines rode easy, and her jump was solid. Today my face is pretty chapped from all that wind. I always give the horses time off after a horse show, so today I cleaned out the trailer, cleaned all my tack and put everything away. I was way too tired to do anything but put the horses away last night. I did ride Mazzy around bareback today so she could stretch her legs. Kylie just got a turnout so she could enjoy the sunshine and roll around in the dirt. Since I am back to work I will only be seeing the horses in the evenings now :-(. Bummer.
